The veterinarian rubbed Kelly’s sides for emphasis. “She needs to lose weight. If not …”

Cover High RezPeggy Frezon recognized the list of serious ailments that followed. It was the same one her own doctor had given her. Dieting with My Dog is the honest and heartfelt story of how one overweight woman and her chubby spaniel struggled to get fit and healthy together.

Theirs was a comfortable routine. While Frezon’s children were flying the nest, her loyal rescue pup snuggled close. Sneaking M&Ms from her secret stash, she would slip Kelly extra doggy cookies too. Why not? Food is love. But then, Kelly became the motivating factor that led Frezon to face down the physical and emotional reasons for her overeating, and for over-feeding her dog.

She learned that embracing change is healthy, and everything is easier with unconditional love. Join Frezon and Kelly on their journey to weight loss with a wag. Dieting with my Dog celebrates our close bonds with our pets in times of both need and triumph. This book is for anyone who has ever loved an animal – through thick and thin.

Critics have embraced Dieting with My Dog for it’s honest portrayal of an issue faced by millions of Americans.
